MnDOT crews repairing pavement buckles on two highways
The Minnesota Department of Transportation says crews are repairing two southern Minnesota roads after the pavement buckled.
The first area is on Highway 169 south of St. Peter on the southbound side of the highway, according to MnDOT.
A crew is also working on a buckled area east of Windom on Highway 60 in the eastbound lanes.
Southern Minnesota was under an excessive heat warning Monday and a heat advisory over the weekend. High temperatures can cause roadway surfaces to buckle.
